At its annual Global Client Forum in Orlando, FL, SSA Global (NASDAQ: SSAG), a leading global provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, today announced that the marine business of Rolls-Royce plc, has chosen a variety of SSA Global products and services to improve its business efficiency and customer service.
Rolls-Royce will implement products and modules including SSA Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), SSA Supply Chain Management (SCM), SSA Collaborative Order Management (COM), SSA Integration and other tools, technologies and application management services.
Before choosing SSA Global, we carefully evaluated solutions from other Tier One suppliers, said Richard Doneghan, ICT/BPI Director, for the Rolls-Royce marine business, SSA Global was clearly the best choice for Rolls-Royce because of the quality and breadth of the product line and the willingness of the SSA Global team to collaborate with us to make sure we meet our business goals.
Rolls-Royce will leverage the extensive SSA Global portfolio to facilitate better visibility into the companys internal supply chain to better manage inventory, deliver products more quickly and enhance after-market capabilities.
We believe the range of SSA Global ERP and extension solutions and services, and our global operations will help Rolls-Royce maximize the value of its investment in information technology, said Rick Gonzales, president, Global Accounts, SSA Global. Our work with Rolls-Royce exemplifies our approach to solving our customers business problems with the right combinations of products and services.
